MIT students, as part of the MIT-MISTI exchange program, as invited to spend 3-6 months conducting research in the areas of quantum theory, and quantum technology at the Skolkovo Institute of Science in Technology located just outside of the city centre of Moscow. The internship will be hosted at Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Laboratory, which focuses on theory and quantum algorithms development and has a long history of collaboration with MIT students and staff.
Those admitted into the program will join the international lab lead by Prof Jacob Biamonte. The lab has successfully hosted students through the MISTI program before and has ongoing projects related to the theory of tensor networks, machine learning applied to quantum physics, using quantum computers to accelerate machine learning tasks, quantum walks on complex networks etc.
Applicants must be currently enrolled at MIT at any level.
For those interested
- Please send an email expressing interest, together with your resume to Prof. Jacob Biamonte and Dr Ksenia Samburskaya (k dot samburskaya at skoltech dot ru) ideally as soon as possible.
